Perils of assimilation

If only life came with subtitles.

I sit and wait for an epiphany, just one modicum of clarity. It doesn't come. I am looking for a little direction, a little advice.

I don't even want to go to Eau Claire this year, but there is no way I can pay off my loans if I drop out. I won't be returning to East Troy, it is the loneliest place I know. I don't think transferring elsewhere will make a difference, because it will bring another bundle of dissatisfaction and frustration. In order to qualify for any study abroad programs, I need to have a 4.0 this semester, which, for me, is impossible. I don't see why I have to be defined by a degree. I hate all the fucking hoops I have to jump through.

It has been a fond wish of mine to disappear, to be in a constant state of departure. But, problems don't ever leave with a change of scenery. There is no escape, is there? I don't want to be tied down by any rules, people and things, but that's how it is.

    Well hey, at least you know you want to do something with your major, regardless of where you're getting it. I don't really think I want to go into mine (especially not my minor...) but it's the only one I think I could stand. I'd like to do something with animals, but FUCK biology. Maybe I can weasel my way in via volunteering at the humane society, and maybe sometime the zoo... hm. I don't know; I'm unsure. Let's be bums!
